Sensor Options There are three different sensors to choose from. All three are compatible with any control box. The major differences between the sensors are the update rate of information and the maximum temperature limits of the sensor’s electronics and battery. The wheel sensors contain both an absolute pressure sensor and a temperature sensor. The sensor has onboard a radio transmitter which sends its information to the antennas. When the wheels are stationary, the sensors do not transmit in order to preserve battery life. Battery life greatly depends on use, and can vary from 1 year to 3 years.
Model: BF1 14.7 MBAR/BIT IR SENSOR Part # F1-100-1263-xxx bf1 Name: DigiTyre IR Housing Material: Peak Max Temperature: 150°C Weight (no stem): 44 grams Update Interval: 1 sec
Pressure Resolution: 14.7 mbar/bit Pressure Range: 52 PSI gauge 88 - 463 kPa abs.
The IR sensor also monitors a tire’s inner carcass temperature in addition to pressure and inner air temperature. A yearly software license fee applies to the IR functionality.
